MASON — Pleasant Valley Hospital has announced the opening of Extended Care in Mason to increase local residents’ access to primary care, after hours and on weekends.
Glen Washington, CEO, FACHE, said, “We understand that access to care is a constant challenge for local residents. In particular, people who are employed during regular business hours may have a difficult time getting their family members to health care appointments. This is why we have opened Extended Care in Mason.”
Certified nurse practioners at Extended Care in Mason offer care for minor medical problems such as cuts, sprains, coughs, and infections, as well as other acute illnesses. People of all ages can be seen without an appointment. Services include direct access to specialists from Pleasant Valley Hospital, Cabell Huntington Hospital and the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine on-site at Pleasant Valley Hospital.
Extended Care in Mason is open seven days a week in the evenings and weekends. The operating hours during the week are Monday through Thursday, 4-9 p.m. and from noon-9 p.m. Fridays, including weekend hours from noon-6 p.m.
Extended Care in Mason is located at 2007 Second Ave. in Mason, in Dr. Lieving’s office building. For more information, visit www.pvalley.org or call (304) 773-8818.
